Two Billings, Montana residents are behind bars after stealing a car and leading a Wyoming Highway Patrol trooper on a high-speed chase northwest of Cheyenne early this (Monday) morning.

"Around 1 a.m. our troopers were dispatched to a report of a Chevy Corvette driving erratically southbound on Interstate 25," said Sergeant David Wagener.

Wagener says a trooper tried to pull the car over just north of Cheyenne when the driver, later identified as 25-year-old Justin Fuller, took off.

"The vehicle turned around and started going the wrong direction on I-25," said Wagener.

"It took the Vandehei on-ramp the wrong direction and then proceeded north on Bishop Boulevard up to Horse Creek Road," added Wagener.  "Once at Horse Creek, the Corvette continued westbound and reached speeds of up to 145 mph at one point."

Fuller eventually came to a stop in a pasture and he and his passenger, 18-year-old Taylor Graves, took off on foot. Both were eventually caught and taken into custody.

Fuller has been charged with possession of stolen property, impaired driving, possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, interference, fleeing and eluding and reckless driving.

Graves has been charged with possession of stolen property and interference.
